ARE YOU LIKE AIRBNB?
Not really. You can of course rent rooms and homes from fellow members - but profit is not the goal of Human Hotel. We are on a social mission to support creatives and forge new meetings and collaborations among you all. Also, we are run by artists. Not investors.
WHO DO YOU MEAN BY "CREATIVES AND VISIONARIES"?
Artists, scientists, designers, filmmakers, activists, writers, researchers, technologists, entrepreneurs and any other talented and visionary individuals doing great work. No random tourists!
WHAT IS YOUR VETTING PROCESS?
We have (and will continue to have) a thorough manual vetting process where we personally review each new member as they sign up. We review the info that is submitted and either accept or decline their membership to Human Hotel. Members are also not allowed to send booking requests to hosts without completing their profile with written info about themselves, their work, links to their social media profiles and more. We obviously do our very best to properly vet people but in the end, it's up to our hosts (and guests) and their level of trust and comfort that makes the final decision. We just try to do most of the work for you beforehand.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I GET ACCEPTED AS A MEMBER?
You can now book a stay within the community or sign up to be a host.
I DON'T HAVE A PASSWORD TO LOG IN?
Click "Forgot password" and enter your email address. We will immediately send you a link to reset your password, so you can log in.
DO I HAVE TO HOST TO BE PART OF HUMAN HOTEL?
No. It's totally up to you if you want to just be a guest or host (or both!).
WHAT DOES IT COST?
Becoming a member is free.
Guests pay a 10% fee on top of their booking total to our community. So, if you book a stay in NYC worth $200 - our booking fee is $20. The money is use to run and develop the Human Hotel community.
Hosts set their own nightly rates and we don't charge any host fees. As a host, you keep 100% of your host rate.
I DON'T LIVE IN ONE OF YOUR CITIES. CAN I STILL JOIN?
Of course you can! You can join now no matter where you live.
WILL YOU ADD MORE CITIES?
Most definitely! More cities are added as we grow the community. We want to be able to host you everywhere you go and you can apply to join no matter where you live.
If you want to start receiving guests but you city isn't listed with us, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and learn about how you and your community can start receiving guests by becoming an Ambassador.
